Ok, I love books.
I love to read.
I can spend hours in a good book store. Hours. Give me a nice, high quality, used book store and I am in heaven.
I get that not everybody shares my passion. I get that some people don't read.
But who, who in the world, would use this service:
Books By The Foot.
I mean, hell why bother? That's like these people who have $95,000 kitchen remodels, but they never cook.
A library is as personal a thing as I can imagine. To hire someone to pick out books as decorations? Did they order their children out of a catalog so they would match the wallpaper? That's like buying a picture frame, and leaving the sample picture of someone you don't know in the frame. Every single book in my house, (and their number is legion) has a story, a history. Many are old, dear friends, some of them are acquaintances I've met in passing, some are scary neighbors, not to be entirely trusted, but each one is there for a reason, and you can bet I know the reason.
Anyone who would use this service has no soul.*
You can bet your ass these people will pretend they have read them. And look at the categories!!
Christina's comment was just too perfect to leave down there in comments:
That's like...worse than hiring someone to pick out your spouse! It's more like hiring someone to pick out your sex toys! And test them for you. /shudder/Exactly!
Wrong. All kinds of wrong.
*As does anyone who doesn't like Johnny Cash, but that's another post.
